Matthias Walkner: "The last days are always very difficult"

January 14 th 2019 - 18:36 [GMT -5]

The defending champion is sitting seventh overall at the end of stage 7, a shade below his level of last year, but he is also aware that everything can change in a heartbeat.

"It was really hard. In the sand, if somebody takes the wrong line, everybody gets lost. I got a little bit confused with some notes and lost a little bit of time. The last days are always very difficult. Normally, in the mass starts, not that much changes, but what is 'normal' in the Dakar?"
